TORAH TENT

is a unique program offering focused mini courses aimed at exploring new realms of Jewish thought and philosophy. Whether it’s Jewish history, ethics or digging beneath the surface of our rituals and traditions, jLearn focuses on the “why” and the “how” of Judaism. Participate in a course that interests YOU. Upon registering, you will be asked to list your time preferences. Class times will be scheduled to accommodate interested participants. All

classes will begin during the week of October 28.

Choose from: GREAT DEBATES IN JEWISH HISTORY Mrs. Rivkah Slonim A fascinating look at six pivotal debates that engulfed the Jewish people at different periods in our history. We will look at the background, motives, key events and wide-ranging legacies of these debates. Five sessions: 75 minutes each

SOUL MAPS: TANYA IN FIVE Mrs. Rochel Chein This class uses ancient mystical teachings in a modern way to help us understand the psychology of our soul. It answers questions as: what is the source of guilt, conflict, and confusion? What are useful strategies for developing joy and direction in everyday life? Five sessions: 60 Minutes each

PRAYER AT THE PODIUM Rabbi Zalman Chein Leading the congregation in prayer is a privilege and a responsibility. In this course we will take a look at the ins and outs of this important role. Learn what the Talmud and Code of Jewish Law teach us and discuss common questions that come up. Five sessions: 60 minutes each

THE DILEMMA: MODERN CONUNDRUMS, TALMUDIC DEBATES, SOLUTIONS FOR TODAY Mrs. Rivkah Slonim This fast paced class is for anyone who loves to think and enjoys seeing how ancient wisdom is applied to the modern day constructs. Explore Jewish ethics and law and their philosophical underpinnings. Appropriate for those with intermediate and advanced Jewish learning skills. Five sessions: 75 minutes each

THAT CAN’T BE TRUE! OR IS IT? Mrs. Rivkah Slonim In this fascinating course we will debunk some of the most common urban legends and myths about Jews, Judaism and the Bible, and learn at least 101 things about Judaism you never knew. Five sessions: 75 minutes each

INTRODUCTORY TALMUD Rabbi Zalman Chein Have you always wanted to explore the Talmud but weren’t sure where to begin? Join us as we acquire the skills and proficiency to delve into this fundamental work. Five sessions: 60 minutes each

THE JEWISH COURSE OF WHY Mrs. Rivkah Slonim Fifty fun, complex, and controversial questions about Jews and Judaism will be explored in this course. Appropriate for beginners, advanced and everyone in between! Five sessions: 75 minutes each ZMANIM: THE HALACHIC CLOCK Rabbi Zalman Chein Time is ours to sanctify: Shabbat comes once a week, holidays are seasonal, and so many other mitzvot are connected with specific times. Learn about how Jewish law views time and the various opinions on how to calculate halachic hours and days. Five sessions: 60 minutes each THE MAGIC OF POETRY AND PROSE Mrs. Rochel Chein Take a deeper look at your childhood favorites! A discussion-based class on the lessons to be learned from the classical works of Dr. Suess and the wonders of Harry Potter. Four sessions: 45 minutes each
